The first cohort to earn the FSA Credential participated in the early-bird version of the exam in Summer 2016. They are a special group and SASB is proud to recognize the achievements of the 90+ professionals by listing their names, job titles, and companies below. Those who have opted out are excluded from the list.

Moving forward, SASB will not recognize cohorts of FSA Credential-holders. Those who have earned the FSA Credential in the future will be viewable in the FSA Directory.
